 NAME
      cal - print calendar

 SYNOPSIS
      cal [[month] year]

 DESCRIPTION
      cal prints a calendar for the specified year.  If a month is also
      specified, a calendar just for that month is printed.  If neither is
      specified, a calendar for the present month is printed.  year can be
      between 1 and 9999.  month is a decimal number between 1 and 12.	The
      calendar produced is a Gregorian calendar.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LANG determines the locale to use for the locale categories when both
      LC_ALL and the corresponding environment variable (beginning with LC_)
      do not specify a locale.	If LANG is not set or is set to the empty
      string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used.

      LC_CTYPE determines the locale for interpretation of sequences of
      bytes of text data as characters (e.g., single- verses multibyte
      characters in arguments and input files).

      LC_TIME determines the format and contents of the calendar.

      TZ determines the timezone used to calculate the value of the current
      month.

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, cal
      behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".	See
      environ(5).

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

 EXAMPLES
      The command:

	   cal 9 1850

      prints the calendar for September, 1850 on the screen as follows:

		September 1850
	    S	 M   Tu	   W   Th    F	  S
	    1	 2    3	   4	5    6	  7
	    8	 9   10	  11   12   13	 14
	   15	16   17	  18   19   20	 21
	   22	23   24	  25   26   27	 28
	   29	30

      However, for XPG4 the output looks like below:

			 Sep 1850
	   Sun	Mon  Tue  Wed  Thu  Fri	 Sat
	    1	 2    3	   4	5    6	  7
	    8	 9   10	  11   12   13	 14
	   15	16   17	  18   19   20	 21
	   22	23   24	  25   26   27	 28
	   29	30

 WARNINGS
      The year is always considered to start in January even though this is
      historically naive.

      Beware that cal 83 refers to the early Christian era, not the 20th
      century.
